Larger Games

PostMon May 15, 2017 3:10 pm

I'm interested in building up to larger games - 1750-2500 points and I'm curious if anyone has any experience in them. I figure a 6x4 playing area would be a natural move. Aside from that, what kind of lists would you bring? I'm having a hard time coming up with a list that I feel good with at 2500 points as Shaltari. 1750 is actually easier for me.

I've played at 2000pts and we stuck with a 4x4 table. It didnt feel overly cramped or have too many more things sitting in the same cluster fudge than we do at 1500pts. (For the next 500pts we are talking about 2 or 3 orbital ships and a few atmosphere ships? not a lot)

Shaltari do have problems with having enough group slots, and even using 7 BGs for the 2000pt game I had to make choices to reduce the number of slots needed to fit everything in.

I think by 2500pts I'd play on a 6x4 table and at that point only use the long edge for deployment and not corners.
